A US delegation will land in Israel Thursday to coordinate a possible visit by US President Donald Trump next month.

The visit is expected to take place on the last week of May and last one night only. It is still unclear where Trump might visit and whether or not he will have time to visit the Palestinian Authority as well.

It was also reported that Nikki Haley, the outspoken ambassador to the UN, will be visiting Israel soon as well. Haley has gained popularity in Israel after several speeches at the UN condemning the organization's treatment of Israel.

Trump is expected to meet with Mahmoud Abbas, the Palestinian leader, on May 3 in Washington. The two leaders "will use the visit to reaffirm the commitment of both the United States and Palestinian leadership to pursuing and ultimately concluding a conflict-ending settlement between the Palestinians and Israel," said White House spokesman Sean Spicer.
